Sending Eskimo Kisses

Good morning!  I hope you enjoyed a great weekend, and if you're lucky, you enjoyed an extra day this week with the holiday on Monday.  That's an extra day for crafting, which sounds like a productive way to spend a day off.  Even though it doesn't feel quite like it, believe it or not, we're still in the middle of winter.  It was 53 degrees on Monday  morning here in Missouri when I finished, this card.  Nothing like the snowy scene you see here, in fact, but beautiful, sunny, and warm outside.  Not our typical January weather, but very nice.  Very, very, nice.   Guess we'll just have to wait and see what mother nature has in store for us for the rest of the winter.  In the mean time, it's fun to create cute winter scenes with my Cottage Cutz dies from The Scrapping Cottage.  

This sweet little Eskimo with Igloo Cottage Cutz die is so much fun to paper piece using patterned paper, and that's exactly what I did with his clothes.  I added some shading with Copic markers, and of course had to bling it up a bit with some glitter for sparkle.  I sponged the edges of the fur on his clothing with some distress ink, and I sponged the igloo with blue ink to accentuate the blocks.  The sentiment is from Peachy Keen Stamps, and I finished this card off with some waffle weave red ribbon.   I can see this particular die being used on some adorable "Winter Fun" scrapbook pages, as well as cards. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you have a wonderful day!  Happy Stamping!
